We get it, you were once a baby. How adorable!! Guess what? We were all babies once too!

We all have pictures of ourselves in our little league outfits or in our third grade school pictures, but we don’t need to share them with everyone every Thursday.

Sure the occasional memorable picture of you and a friend or sibling that is generally really cute or really funny is fine, but when you’re doing it every Thursday, it’s a little much.

Of course you look cute in your dance recital picture, but not when you posted one just like it last week!

“Oh another picture of you as a baby, yes!! I can’t wait until I see your picture next week too!” Said no one ever.

There are approximately fifty-two Thursdays every year. That is fifty-two different pictures of you as a child. Wasn’t your Bar Mitzvah montage enough? (Jewish joke)

There’s nothing more uncomfortable than looking at your news feed or Instagram feed, just to find pictures upon pictures of babies. Every Thursday I feel like a god damn pedophile!

I personally find some of the pictures to be depressing too. Some of your friends are clearly no longer in their prime. There’s nothing worse than watching the week-by-week evolution of your friend go from an adorable child to an awkward young adult.

This is why unattractive people love #TBT so much.

How many years is considered “throwback” anyway? I’ve seen people post pictures from a few months prior and pretend like they’re somehow retro. Who are you trying to fool!? I say a picture needs to be at least five years old for it to truly be from “back in the day”.  I mean come on, it’s not #JustAFewWeeksAgoThursday.

All I’m trying to say is, I don’t need to be reminded of your childhood once a week. Sure, once a month is tolerable if you want to show the world what a cute and chubby baby used to be, fine. Go for it. Have a blast. But when you are posting pictures of your childhood on a weekly basis, it’s really just not that cute.
